Group Unsubscribe

Allow users to opt-out of a specific group of messages.

Use Subscription Groups in Campaigns

Subscription groups allow users to select the content they want to receive, reducing unsubscription rates and fostering strong brand-user relationships. This approach enhances user satisfaction and builds a more personalized connection with your audience.

You can select the subscription group you want to include in your campaign from the Select Subscription Groups list. This allows you to target users who have subscribed to all the groups you selected for the campaign. To do so:

  1. From the CleverTap dashboard, select Campaign and create an email campaign. Refer to Create Email Campaign.
  2. From the Who > Control group and targeting cap > Send campaign only to users subscribed to all groups selected below.
  3. Select the groups you want to include in your campaign from the Select subscription groups list.
  1. Click Done and click Continue.
  2. Complete creating the email campaign.

Use Subscription Groups in Email Landing Page

Refer to handling unsubscribes to add the Subscription Group configuration to your email landing page.

Track Unsubscribes

Whenever a user unsubscribes, CleverTap raises a system event called Channel Unsubscribed which updates the user's property with the status of subscription for the group.
